The Emblem

Martini emblem

The Martini renown logo was born in 1929. That was a year when the company used the black name tag spelling “Martini” for the first time. It was superimposed to a red circle and was successively referred to as “ball and bar”.

It is told that the designer, Livio Cibrario, submitted three different proposals for the logo; it was thanks to impulsivity and instinct, and a bit of luck, that the owners chose the one who would become their icon. One of the theories is the design was inspired by the sun setting behind a Martini sign.

For a short period of time, in 1944, the logo appeared bearing a green contour. For more than half a century the logo has not undergone any significant modification; in 1995 the Di Robilant agency took it upon them to restyle the logo by making the font, the shapes and the colors more solid. In 2003, the same agency created a 3-D effect on the red circle, giving renewed value to all the other elements.
